Fresh Thanks

Good morning, Friends and HAPPY NEW YEAR!!! We had a quiet evening last night. We got home early evening (picked up our dinner on the way). Then unpacked (the part I hate the most) and then watched some football. After the game we were so tired that we went to bed. Looks like the new year came in just fine - lol! I hope you all had a very safe and fun time celebrating!

Today's card is one that I copied from the Stampin' Success magazine. This magazine is one that Stampin' Up! demonstrators get every month that is filled with beautiful samples and ideas along with great business advice. I saw this card and knew I had to make one, too. The card base is Very Vanilla. Then I cut another piece of Very Vanilla and stamped the images from Fresh Vintage in Lucky Limeade, Pool Party, and Soft Suede. Then I sponged around the edges with Soft Suede and used my color spritzer and Soft Suede marker to add some "splatter". Then I took a piece of designer paper from the Everyday Enchantment pack and flagged one end before adhering it to the stamped piece. Then I popped up the panel onto the card. I stamped the flower image onto a scrap piece of Very Vanilla and cut around it and glued it to a Soft Suede piece that had been punched with the blossom bouquet triple layer punch. I used the Everyday Enchantment ribbon and brad pack to add a brad to the center and popped it up on the card. Then I stamped the greeting from Thank You Kindly in Soft Suede on a strip of Very Vanilla and glued it to the card. A super simple card! Thanks for stopping by and have a super day!
